  1. halloween

    It was a lot of fun and not crazy. We only had about 300 - 400 TOT'ers. Didn't see any crazy traffic jams like I expected to see. Took the kids to four different loops and all were tame and easy. There were so many fun and friendly people. We even had a girl play a song from Beauty and the Beast on her violin for us. She was fantastic! That just shows how unhurried it all was.
  2. New 2017 Fort Wilderness Merchandise

    Nooooooooooooooooooo! I said I wasn't buying anything this trip. Nothing. Ugh. I feel like I need one of those shirts, so .... well, we'll see tomorrow.
  3. Best to leave loop open-ended?

    We have a pop up and camp in the tent loops. Although we don't bring our dogs to Disney, we do have ice cold air and security cameras that we could keep an eye on things, as well as the thermometer, to be sure there were no a/c glitches. Maybe others are doing that? Personally, I don't think Disney is fun for pets. We are away from them too much. If I had to bring them, for some unforeseen reason, they would stay at Best Friends while we were at the parks. The days are just too long for them to be alone.
  4. Trauma at UF Shands? Makes me wonder if you had a hand in saving my son back in 2013. BTW, we live off 247, about halfway between Lake City and Branford. Howdy neighbor! To the OP, my son lives in a Keystone Cougar on our property. We've been very impressed by the quality. Only complaint is the stickers peeling off the outside.
  5. I went to the pdf link provided and was able to read the fine print better. It says no movie or campfire on the 30th due to alternate activities scheduled. Since I found out what Beach Bash is, that's great with me.
  6. One more question - for the Halloween tie dye, how much does it cost? Do you bring your own shirts? Thanks again.
  7. Thank you!!! Yes, the beach bash sounds like fun! My grandchildren are 4,5,7, and 8 so I think they may enjoy the beach bash more than the movie and campfire anyway! I totally missed that on the flyer, as I was reading it as just a place where winners of contests were announced. I may never have realized what it was, so glad I asked about. Looks like we have fun stuff planned for the kids for both days after all. They won't be doing the parks, just the Fort, so wanted some fun lined up.
  8. Thanks for posting! Our first Halloween and been anxious to plan for the grandchildren. I don't see a movie listed for Monday October 30th. I wonder if they will still have the campfire that night? It's disappointing because my grandchildren will only be spending two nights with us - 30th and 31th. Obviously trick or treating on the 31st, but leaves the other evening blank. What is the route of the golf cart parade?
  9. NOT happy about the potential for thousands of non-paying folks to converge on the Fort during Halloween. I have heard of homeschool groups actually planning to do their trick or treating there. Pool hopping seems minor in comparison.
  10. Okay, thank you! If you end up with extras, I will send a SASE with a card sleeve to put it in. And my eternal thanks.
  11. That would be amazing! Thank you so much!
  12. I didn't jump to any conclusion either. I read it. We will be at the Fort for Halloween this year, and better not encounter anything like this. Guests do not rent the entire loop, just their site. Nobody has a right to extend their childish games past the limits of their own sites. There are lots of children who may be upset by this sort of thing as well. Family friendly is not = jumping out of the dark and scaring the crap out of people.
  13. Their intent is irrelevant to me. Staging a haunted house on your own site, where people can voluntarily enter, or not, is fine. Hiding at various places around the loop, where they could encounter someone just heading to the bathhouse, is absolutely unacceptable.
  14. I'd be kicking ass and taking names. It's Disney, for goodness sake! What if they jumped out and scared someone with a heart problem? My son has PTSD, along with traumatic brain injuries, but looks like an average adult. If someone were to scare him and make him fall and hit his head or something, they may end up with similar injuries. I wouldn't even be playing with people like that.
  15. I'm excited about it. I don't play the game, but my adult son does. Some years party cards have been repeats of other years, so great that it was a new one. We will be there Halloween, but no parties, so he is going to buy one from eBay before we go.
